You may remember last week when I posted a review for the EZ Tofu Press, and now I am excited to share a tofu recipe with you, and have a giveaway! Ben, the creator of the EZ Tofu Press has been generous to offer a EZ Tofu Press to a reader! I am going to share this delicious recipe with you first, and then at the end of the post give you the details on the giveaway.
I was so excited to use my tofu press and found a yummy sounding, yet unconventional recipe to try it out with. I am very used to eating the typical tofu with soy sauce or some Asian sauce alike. So, when I found a recipe for tofu that featured citrus flavors, I was very intrigued. I am happy I tried it out, because it was really delicious and is definitely going t hold a place in our menu rotation.
First, you want to prep your extra firm tofu by getting as much water out as possible. I used the EZ Tofu Press for this and you can see how after only a short time, my thick brick of tofu turned into a thinner, more dense water free block of tofu.
By extracting the water, your tofu turns into something of a sponge, just waiting to absorb whatever you marinate it in. This makes for delicious flavors and textures. Using the EZ Tofu press really takes out any guess work with the pressing of the tofu. You pretty much know you have taken out as much water as possible.
After pressing the water out of the tofu, the marinade is made, and then the tofu sits in the marinade for as long as you want (preferably over an hour-I did mine overnight).
Then you cook it up, and it’s done. It’s really easy, and tasty.
